Unfinished: Injustice 2 Beta 02/15/2017

Strap on that bat armor, boys! It's time to face the Internet in one-on-one superhero combat.

Sometimes we look at a game before it's done. When that's the case? Well... it must be Unfinished.

Me too. That kind of thing could keep me going in singleplayer.

I didn't love the first game. Some of this looks great, but some other parts not so much. I'm not a DC guy so characters like Blue Beetle are just lame to me. I do like Swamp Thing though. Boon has sort of made hints to Watchmen characters and that would be cool to see I think.

Boy, it is like they went into making this game with only one mandate: make all characters looks incredibly stupid.

I enjoyed the first one even though I had no idea who half of the characters were. If this ends up as solid as the first then it should be a good solid fighter. No idea if the hardcore play it but I'm not hardcore heh.

As a DCAU fan, I'm excited for this. The first game was a fun fighter, and I love the focus on the extended roster of characters.

I wasn't in love with Injustice 1 after the novelty of it wore off. It's a good game, just never got its hooks into me like MK does.

But dammit, even though this is just Injustice: Except More So, I feel a little tingling of hype for some reason.

I think this looks fantastic; just not into another fighting game ATM. "For Honor" took that money.

I really like how Netherrealm keeps the decades old trend going off fighting games doubling as graphics demos, while the majority of other fighting games these days go for a more stylized look. The character models and backgrounds look really good, tho Black Canary's hair seems to have some issues with AA.

@jpope: Eh, you're probably right. Was trying to be funny but after 36 hours with no sleep thats probably a bad idea I suppose. Rethought and took down; no offense meant!

I thought I was crazy, but I think Jeff's memory was hazy or I'm misunderstanding what he meant, but MK vs DC was not on a 2D plane. I remember that being a big reason why I didn't care for it. I just had to watch some videos to verify.

I can't tell if I like this style. The levels looks amazing, the animation quality is probably the best in the business and I even like most of the outfits. There's just something weird going on with the faces, I'm not sure if this game benefits from the motion capture. Maybe it's just me.

The face stuff in here is good but how it fits in the game itself occasionally looks like LA Noire.

The numbers those items change seem pretty minor. Like, here is plus 6 to a number that is over 1000. I wonder how much of a difference they make.

@electrotherobot: which is the worst. I no longer own a console and this seems great, so I really hope I can eventually play it.

... plus my #1 fave DC lady Power Girl is being represented... by a costume. Hey, I'll take it!

@chilibean_3: From what I've seen with streams and stuff when those numbers start to get up there they REALLY get up there

A lot of, two people do the exact same combo as the exact same character to each other and one get 40% damage and the other gets like 60%

Sounds like fun for single-player and playing online, but luckily it sounds like that will be off by default in Ranked and tournaments

I like how we now have a fighting game team in Jeff and Jason. A shame SFV didn't resonate with Jeff, but hopefully he has more luck with Injustice.

Hearing Black Canary referred to as a "deep lore" DC character bums me out. I dunno, I guess my perspective on the popularity of DC stuff is skewed from growing up on the DCAU and almost 0 Marvel stuff though. Pretty psyched about most of this roster from that end though, only a little bummed it's Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle and not the ever-amazing Ted Kord.

(Also very cool that it only took 30 seconds for some "Superman sucks" action. Great.)

Did Jason just say it's hard to find Match Options when it was literally on screen right in front of him? Or am I mistaken

@cesakich: Ah, that's a dang shame. I still like the cosmetic mix and matching so going ranked and turning off the stat boost for multiplayer seems like the way to play.

I was top 500 on the leader boards in the first Injustice at some point, and people were a lot more savage at that stage, so coming back and seeing people not be great at the game especially with old returning characters like Batman really messes with my head. It's kind of a relief not seeing savage Batman right off the bat!

This looks incredibly good though. I really can't wait.

Jeff has never been a comics guy, so to an outsider I can't think of him coming across her anywhere. She isn't in the "big" movies, if you don't like comics you're not going to watch Arrow/Flash/Legends which is probably what has raised her profile enough to get her in this game, same for Supergirl.

I do agree it's a shame that outside of Wonder Woman, the women of the DC Universe are dreadfully underrepresented. Same with the Superman hate, I'm totally fine with people not liking a characters but the SUPES SUCKORZ! isn't good to hear.

I'm not a fighting game guy, but I've loved what I've seen of the NetherRealm story modes in MK 9/10 and the first Injustice. It would be cool to see a feature where @jeff and @unastrike play through the story modes of those games before Injustice 2 comes out.

The almost photo-realistic faces are something that I could get behind in the fighting genre. The graphics general are on another level, but I do wonder how the game would play with the fluidity of marvel fighter animations.

Supergirl's face reminds me of Elliot Reed of Scrubs fame.
